My Fogs won't come on...

Can someone tell me how I may go about fixing this issue? And also, is there anyway to unlock the trunk without the key? I always have to turn off my car to unlock the trunk.

I know if you put it on park you should be able to open the trunk with out shutting her off and for the fogs is the light thing pulled out or they just wont turn on.

When you pull turn the fogs on, do you see the picture of them light up on the dash? If so, you might have some mixed problems in there, can be just the fuse. As for the trunk, try using the secondary switch, open your Glove compartment and on the top left there should be a switch. If that doesnt work, try the third. I've never used the third but it should be hidden somewhere in the Rear Passenger seat headrest area. Do you atleast hear the mechanical sound it makes when the trunk opens?

Garage
Have you tried opening the trunk with the release button in the glove box?
Have you checked the fuse for the fogs or did you bump the fog light button inward and now it won't come on?

Never knew of the glovebox switch. When I bought the car there was no manual so Ive had to figure everything out. Im trying to find one to buy right now actually. No picture of the fogs on the dash.

Yea there is no seperate switch for the fog lights. I keep my lights on auto and the actual knob that is pointing to auto needs to be pushed in (or out i cant remember) for the fog lights. If your fog lights are on the light symbol n your dash will have curved lines instead of straight lines

FYI, i got my owners manual on eBay for $13 shipped and it included a cloth case rather than the plastic one.
